exitcauses CallClerk to exit.  If a call or backup is in progress, CallClerk will let it complete before exiting
extrabroadcastcauses CallClerk to perform an extra set of UDP broadcasts on port 10081 when a call is being processed
nojournalpopupcauses the pop-up of the Outlook Journal entry to be suppressed when a new Journal Entry is created
notimecheckcauses CallClerk to ignore significant date variations since the last time it was last run
Both these commands will play your currently unreviewed messages through your computer's speakers.  More specifically, what will be played is:
  i) a summary of how many unplayed messages you have   
  ii)  for each (if any) unplayed message:         
       an announcement letting you know when the call came in and from whom         
       the message   
  iii) (if there were any unplayed messages) a message to let you know there are no more messages to be played  

The LIFO (Last In First Out) plays the most unplayed recent messages first, the FIFO (First In First Out) plays the oldest unplayed messages first.  

While playing the unplayed messages the CallClerk History window will be opened.  Closing the window will stop the messages from playing. 

If the CallClerk History window was not already open when you issued the command to play the unplayed messages, it will be automatically closed following the last message being played.
tapicalleridandring=ignorecauses CallClerk to ignore the caller id and ring info in tapi mode
usefilewatcherby default CallClerk uses network broadcasts to report calls across your network; this option provides for an alternative method in the case where your network broadcasts are being blocked.  Using this method requires all your PCs to be sharing the same CallClerk database over your network
whiteiconcauses CallClerk to show its systray icon with a white background - which is easier for some to see
Command line options can be entered through the dos command window or via a windows short cut; the order of the options is not important. If CallClerk is not running it will be started when the command line is entered; if CallClerk is already running the command line options will be applied to the already running version of CallClerk.

Here are some example command line entries are:

"C:\Program Files\CallClerk\CallClerk.exe” dial
       causes CallClerk to start with the Systray icon and the CallClerk Dial Out window visible

"C:\Program Files\CallClerk\CallClerk.exe” history directory
       causes CallClerk to start with the Systray icon, History, and Directory windows visible

"C:\Program Files\CallClerk\CallClerk.exe” hide dial
       causes CallClerk to start with its Systray icon hidden and with the CallClerk Dial Out window visible

"C:\Program Files\CallClerk\CallClerk.exe”
       causes CallClerk to start with the Systray icon visible
